Terrell Owens Super Bowl rings 0
A-Rod World Champion rings 0

We'll call it a draw. For every crappy series A-Rod has had in the postseason , Terrell has put up a 4 catch 40 yard playoff performance.

Granted, A-Rod has struggled the last couple years in the post season, but his career post-season numbers aren't bad at all.

Well if he would agree to be paid in Canadian dollars, even the Marlins could afford him. ;-7

HR in postseason:
Terrell Owens: 0
Geek: 0
Alex Rodriguez: 6

You remember 2004? When he hit .421 in the division series? I sure do.
You remember 2005? When he only hit .133 but was able to draw enough walks to OBP .435? I sure do.
You remember 2000? When he hit .409 in the championship series against the Yankees, who eventually won it all that year? I sure do.

Remember the fact that he's a career .297 hitter in the postseason?
I sure do.

Remember the fact that he's been crucified based on 16 at-bats by you in this post?
I sure do.
You know how ridiculous you sound? I sure do.

So, if I understand your theory correctly (and I think that I do), A-Rod is worth every penny that the the Yanks are paying him just to keep him off of other teams so that he cannot hurt the Yanks with his postseason heroics?


Interesting :-?
